Ah, middling sci-fi. There's so much of it. This one features Richard Weber in a minor role as the hero's copilot delivering this stultifying line in the first act:
"Y'know captain, every year of my life I grow more and more convinced that the wisest and best is to fix our attention on the good and the beautiful."
In the only other movie in which I've seen him act, 12 to the Moon
, and in a much larger role, he again gets to deliver bad lines, but that movie is packed with bad lines. I don't think any other actor could have made Weber's lines come across as anything but idiotic, but being such a bad actor, they made his scenes memorable howlers in both movies.
Otherwise, the acting in good enough. The movie has a wild and stupid story, cute young women, a fight over one such woman, and goofy-looking aliens, all seen in a number of films from the era. I think it all started with Cat-Women of the Moon
. I like it because of the women, it doesn't bore, nostalgia, and the inadvertent humor.
If you can't see that sometimes what's bad in movies is funny, you have my pity as you'll never be able to fully appreciate what they have to offer. These things were funny to audiences at the time, and still are.
